Falafel, falafel, falafel. Just bring it to me in mass amounts and never stop. So fresh, crispy and smother it with the cream hommos.

We loved it all, enjoyed every bite from greek salad with very fresh feta and greek dressing that they really should bottle. It was very, very good and light on a very hot day. This is my Mom's food. Very simple, fresh baba, and the lamb is quite good. I am trying to eat less meat but had to have some, so I ordered a side of lamb with my hommos and just made a great spread for my group. Took five business peers and introduced them to how to eat like a native of the middle east and this is the place to do it.Started with hommos, lamb, greek salad, olives, baba, tabbouleh, feta, and something my Mom never made, but should, tuscan beans. They are divine. Rice was warm and toasty , added eggplant to make it a meaty, meatless dish. Yum...Only thing missing is the belly dancer but I go to Imperial Fez when I want that, this is where I go for less formal, comfort food.Can I call, you Mom? The chef must be a Mom ???

I just can't believe that people giving this place 5/5 stars have actually eaten Mediterranean food before.

Fresh... uhhh, no. Okay, the cucumbers in my greek falafel wrap seemed fresh and the lettuce was not brown, but the rest of the

I was so excited to go to Olive Bistro. I read the rave reviews and drove twenty minutes through traffic to get there. I have an onion allergy so I called before purchasing my groupon to make sure I'd be able to order. The employee listed a 5-6 items that were onion free. When I got there, the same guy (Scottish accent)said they didn't have anything I could eat. He blew me off and kept attending to the seated customers. He even took another walk-in customer's order who came in after me. I waited patiently trying to be positive and finally found three items I could have. By then, 20 mins had gone by. I was going to pay and he said I couldn't use my groupon because it was dine in only. 'Okay, I'll eat here.' Then he said "You already told me you were getting it to go." I said that was before I knew you couldn't use your groupon on to go orders. "Then you should have read it, I can't serve you." He refused to take my $ or honor my groupon and said he had to get back to his seated customers, who'd been there longer than I was. Of course he also said there was no mgr. available. I don't know if he discriminates against groupies or if they just treat their black customers that way. Either way, I'll never go back. I was so disappointed and I thank God for City Search so I can share my experience.

The hummus is so fresh, creamy and always, always good

I have never had hummus like this, so rich. It is so good on top of the falafel, with olives or just alone. But my way is with a glass of chardonnay and olives, feta. My husband loves the lamb and gyros...

In Short
A great choice for casual dinners and last-minute lunches, this tiny bistro has big potential to make your list of favorite standbys. With a sister restaurant in Vinings, the in town Ponce location skimps on decor--theā€¦
